Finger Lakes News & Notes

- We had another great weekend last weekend performing songs from the new CD as well as palying acoustic rock and blues classics at Dr. Frank Wine Cellars. I want to Thank Joe, George, The "Finger Lake Shake" Dancers, and everyone at Dr. Frank for their warm hospitality and for making it so much fun to be there. Remember, My new CD "Sparkling Diamonds- Songs of The Finger Lakes" is now available at the retail shops at Dr. Frank Wine Cellars (west side of Keuka Lake), Lakewood Vineyards (west side of Seneca Lake), Barrington Cellars (east side of Keuka Lake), & Artizans Gift Shop in Naples NY (south end of Canandaigua Lake). Or to order a CD by mail, just fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

If you are a Finger Lakes winery or an organization having a Finger Lakes wine-related event, I am available to perform. Also, I'm looking for additional wineries or gift stores or retailers to carry the CD. It makes a great Finger Lakes gift item. Just email me by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.
